Bonfiglioli frequency inverter Active Cube series: The drive designed for all industrial applications.

Bonfiglioli Active Cube series are specifically designed for automation machines. Allowing an extensive control of the motor, these series are fitting a wide range of industrial sectors. The Active Cube includes many features making it suitable for universal use, both as an effective “System drive”, and also as a “Servo drive”. Several enhanced functionalities are embedded in the Active Cube including Cyclic Synchronous Positioning (CSP) mode, brake control and encoder evaluation. Moreover, the new single axis for the control of servo motors, induction motors and synchronous reluctance motors, delivers high dynamic response, high performance and application versatility. Thanks to various communication protocols, the Active Cube offers the broadest connectivity with the most advanced control technology. Active Cube benefits from the full compatibility with the extensive program of Bonfiglioli synchronous servomotors and accessories (BMD series), which together provide the possibility of a total Bonfiglioli servo system. The combination of Active Cube and Bonfiglioli Synchronous Reluctance motor (BSR) offers new solutions for application demands regarding efficiency (IE4) and power density.

Option modules.

Active Cube is designed to give the highest flexibility in drive hardware to suit every control requirement. Machine designers can select from an extensive range of possible expansion hardware modules that can be fitted directly into the 3 available slots on the standard Active Cube unit. Mounting and connection is fast and easy thanks to onboard fastening devices. Using option modules, Active Cube features and integration ability can be greatly expanded: the number of possible hardware configurations offers solutions for a wide variety of requirements and applications. Build the best hardware configuration of Active Cube for your machine!

Bonfiglioli drive Active Cube series Interface / KP-232.

Serial interface KP232 can be used as an alternative to control unit KP500. This connection enables parameterisation, monitoring, setting management, inverter control and even commissioning from a PC or laptop computer. The serial point-to-point connection between inverter and PC complies with specifications for transmission between data terminals (DTE) and data communication equipment (DCE), requiring, in this mode, a serial pin-to-pin cable with SUBD-9 male connector on the inverter side. The KP232 interface is compatible with lines up to 15 metres. The serial transmission protocol ensures high data security and does not require handshake signals between computer and inverter.

ISO-USB Interface.
The ISO-USB Interface links the KP232 or CM-232 to a USB port of your PC. This interface uses an isolated USB/RS232 converter to improve the robustness against possible EMC disturbances. This Interface can be used with PCs using Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows Vista and Windows XP with FTDI drivers provided with the VPlus installation package. The Interface uses USB serial numbers and therefore the PC is able to assign uniquely the COM port. The USB side is compatible with USB1.1 and USB2.0.
